  2. Through a collaborative approach and active stakeholder engagement in the development of relevant policy positions, provide:
  • Industry input into the implementation of the Agreement with Government in relation to Prostheses List matters. 
  • Industry input into the MBS Review or other changes to the MBS which may impact on market access issues for the MedTech Sector.
